Solving the World's problems, one Rum Cocktail at a time.


We are a social group of guys that enjoy sipping rum, drinking rum cocktails, seeking out Tiki Bars, touring distilleries and anything to do with rum culture. Based in New Orleans, our members come from all over the country and converge during Mardi Gras to parade and celebrate.

Drinking Rum before 10am makes you a Pirate, not an Alcoholic
